Why Cork Mats Can be Better
Cork is made from the bark of a tree commonly found in the Mediterranean area around Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Morocco, and Tunisia. The cork is harvested by stripping down the bark of trees, which naturally regrows. There’s no cutting down or wasteful residue in the process, making it an ideal renewable resource.
When it comes to finding the right yoga mat for a heated vinyasa practice, your sweaty hands need to know they can rely on the square piece of material beneath you, no slipping allowed.
The cork texture provides soft, subtle extra padding (perfect for sensitive knees!). Seamlessly transition from upward dog to downward dog – a definitive, telltale transition in terms of slip ‘n’ grip-ness.
Cork feels great under our hands and feet. The smell is not that of the rubber alternative, and when you spend a lot of time face down, the smell of your yoga mat becomes an issue. This will feel like doing yoga as nature intended: on a soft but supportive, earthy texture.
